- (London, 08/25/10) John and Paul, Ray and Dave, Liam and Noel – history is littered with great bands that suffered from relationship strains, Pete and Carl being no exception. Six years ago when Pete was forced out of the Libertines, a full scale reunion looked about as likely as an Oasis reggae album. Pete’s well documented drug problem became more of a talking point than the music as the arcadian dream came to a messy end after just two albums. Whether or not Pete is completely clean now is anyone’s guess, but Carl agreeing to play these gigs alludes to the assumption that Pete is in at least a better place than he was back then, whatever ‘better’ is in his chaotic world. There has been much to enjoy of the band’s individual output since they went their separate ways. Babyshambles put out two solid efforts and Dirty Pretty Things had their moments, as did John’s Hassall’s band, Yeti, who were criminally ignored. Yet nothing could recreate that magic which we’ve missed so dearly this side of the 00′s, a void that absolutely nobody could fill, no, not even the Arctic Monkeys.
Due to the track’s political undertones, it’s comprised of vintage footage from conflicts spanning the past century.
Welsh band Los Campesinos! will return to the US and Canada in October for a large tour.
London-based synthpop band Ou Est Le Swimming Pool have revealed they will go ahead with the release of their debut album after their frontman Charles Haddon died at the Pukkelpop event in Belgium last weekend.
